Is it possible, or programmable, to link the Q4 environment to external data or content?

For instance....

Could a video GUI use an Internet-based video source?
Could Internet-based IMs be linked to internal game messaging?
Could a screenshot be captured and sent to an external site or e-mail server?
Could a texture be located on a server rather then the local PK4 file?
Etc.

Any ideas?

None of this is possible without major changes... which means a talented programmer could do it with the SDK.

The problem is that the game is setup to look within its own directory structure and won't look outside of that. This means no outside influence on your map.
